Total lunar eclipse tonight. Just checked, there is a bite taken out of the bottom of the moon and the shadow is moving slowly over the surface. I am very excited; it is a perfect night to see the total eclipse and the moon turn red.
BBC report. Times report. It will be at its height between 10.24pm to 11.58pm. ( Pic shows a 1993 lunar eclipse from CNN.com)
In ancient times, this was a portent of evil and disaster. Bad day for a celebration if you are superstitious. But I don't believe in ill-fate dogging people, I believe that you make your own luck, and that it's how you react to chance events, as well as how you behave in your daily life which creates the consequences you live with, not the movements of the moon, or the stars.
